Exquisite 1920s, large (24 x 16 x 16 cms) black lacquer cased Mah-Jong set with double brass carrying handles and drop in front lid. As well as the lid, the side panels and top are heavily decorated with gilded and painted landscape and foliate depictions. All visible in the detailed pictures Complete, 148 piece (including 4 spares), the tiles are of one-third bone to two-thirds bamboo and measure 3 x 2.2 cms and decorated as can be seen with the Arabic numerals which indicate the it was made in China for the European export market. It also has a good quantity of bone tally sticks, a circular bone winds indicator box and slide-top dice box - all original to the box. No cracks. Just age-relate, light surface scuffs to lacquer. Remarkable that it has survived the ravages of time this well.
